This place has plenty of outdoor seating for enjoying those great California summer days and nights. Best part-they serve breakfast ALL DAY. I had the Salmon salad however and the fish was cooked perfectly with that nice crispy outside. Service was a little slow, but as long as you don't have anywhere to be you should be fine dining here.

I really like this restaurant. It is in downtown Orange and has a great vibe. They have great food and a friendly staff. You *almost* forget you are eating outside next to a busy street too! Their breakfast menu is varied and offers a great selection, plus they have mimosas!!!!! Parking can be difficult, but you do have the local... More

We eat at the Filling station everytime we are in Orange. The patio is casual and great for relaxing and people watching. Food is excellent. Just a block from Chapman University.

This is a pretty cool restaurant you can sit inside or outside on the patio there are heaters on the patio for cooler days. The coffee's good I had bacon and eggs. I don't get the one slice of toast but that's what they give you. The quality of food is good good ambience servers could smile a little more.

This place was amazing. Went for breakfast on a Sunday morning (holiday weekend), brought a dog, so we needed to sit on the patio. Waited less than 2 minutes. The server was friendly and quick. We were sitting as far away from the restaurant as was possible, right at the sidewalk, basically and the servers were awesome even though the... More

Outstanding in every way. Fresh tasting, deliciously prepared, served by stellar wait staff. Couldn't have asked for a better breakfast...two days in a row!

The breakfast burrito was outstanding, best I've ever had. Ambiance was interesting, hard to believe it was once a gas station. Service was attentive and very pleasant. I definitely recommend this restaurant for breakfast and would like to try lunch sometime.

We went to the Filling Station for brunch on a Friday morning in May. Due to commencement events at nearby Chapman University, the city was more crowded than usual. My son, who lives nearby tried to make a reservation since there were 10 of us, but was told they did not take reservations. However, when we arrived there, a table... More

Located near Chapman University, this popular restaurant has something for everyone. Their breakfast selection is varied and I wasn't disappointed. Parking is on the street and be prepared for a short walk if the restaurant is busy.
